well, to be honest, I left because I didn't have the Bonneville anymore and I am still not a fan of the new forum format. It'* a good concept but it gets confusing with so many varying models of cars. So, I decided just to stick with aleromod.com and thats where I have been until this LeSabre came around. I didn't feel like joining another forum when I remembered this one now catered to all GM models.

Kinda of a love/hate oxymoron? I think we did a great job of keeping our individual model tastes covered yet reaching out to all of GM in a company where so many models share things. Especially ones out of production.

yeah, i guess so. I would have never left if it remained a bonneville exclusive or if it had at least kept a limited theme focusing on the 3800 engine or the h-body platform. Just wasn't my cup of tea anymore, no disrespect.

so, looking at it in another light, I know the lesabre is very similar to the bonneville and thats why I am back. still not a fan of totally unrelated cars all on one forum but there'* enough h-body know-how around here to be helpful

personally i visited this site a bunch of times before to get my bonnie going but i never got involved or posted anything just because it was so specific that you cant have a non bonnie discussion or stance. now that it is open its like one stop shopping and the more diverse people on here builds up non bonnie info to the levels of specific sites. all the bonnie info is still here plus all the extra now.

Nice thought Justin and that was a big part of m thought process in prodding the owner to allow us to grow. Bonnevilles are now out of production and almost all such Forums show decline and statistically dying. The Bonneville shares so much with a large variety of cars in one mechanical group or another, we have a very good atmosphere as far any Forum, and I have never regretted the move. We continue to grow, prosper, and while giving each of the common brands/models their own space, it gives everyone other areas to discuss GM and life in general. The site still leads Forums for new Bonneville owner registrations And beginning to get more participation from the others.
